That, and these Line-Output DIY projects, got me wondering just how many unused pins are in these little interface ports...and if there would be an "easy" way to tap into that data stream.
According to ClieOS, at least for the Sansa, this actually is not very easy to do. The hardware would have to of course provide a digital output to the interface for this to work. If I'm reading his post correctly, that has not been implemented on the Fuze. Bummer, because it seems the little unit has a lot going for it as an audiophile source, otherwise.
Incidentally, ClieOS--what does "SoC" stand for? Are you talking hardware or firmware? Sorry for such an inane question - I must still be quite the neophyte.
